The T-Shirt My Sister Gave Me

I was trying to find on Christmas day, on the web, the t-shirt my sister gave me for Christmas. But, I had no success. Well, when I recently went to go put it on, the manufacture tag fell out of the shirt and it had the web site on it. Well, I went to the website and I think I found another shirt that I should purchase.

So, What Did I Get For Christmas?

Tristyn gave me my gift early (on 12/10). She gave me the new Sublime album and a iPod vent holder for my car.

JoAnna said my gift is on its way... (I hope this is what she said I was getting)

Brian, he helped me get my network up and running. I now have all three computers connected in my house. Sweet!

My sister gave me a t-shirt that said, "Don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day."

On my moms' side of the family, I received a gift card to Wal-Mart.

On my dads' side of the family, I received a Texas Hold'em Poker set that you use the TV to play along with.

Then, on Christmas morning I got a Napoleon Dynamite talking doll, Season 5 of Seinfeld, three gift cards, a 3 ft tube of licorice (each licorice piece is 3 feet long!), new bed sheets, Star Wars PEZ Collector's Set (which, I will never open), socks, under-roo's, clip on visor mirror ("CAUTION: Do not install near or on air bags." ... Errr!).... Um... That's pretty much all I got.

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

I wish everyone the best today. Hope you got what you asked for. If not, remember, there will be something better next year (unless it was an antique that you were asking for).

I also hope that you ate your fiber like I told you to do yesterday...? If you didn't, that's okay... I forgot to as well.

I was originally going to use the picture on the right as the picture in my holiday greeting card picture (for customers for my business, and some others), but with everyone I told it to, no one seemed to get it until I told them what it meant. So I never had the cards made.

Although this is not an actual picture of MY keyboard, it is starting to look like it. (That is how I got the idea.) Can anyone guess what it is suppose to say? (Sorry if I have already told you what the answer is...)

I'll post what I got for Christmas, on tomorrows entry... Happy Holidays!

It's a Festivus Miracle!

All though I don't actually celebrate Festivus, I do recognize this holiday when it rolls around every year.

If you are asking yourself, "What the heck is Festivus?!", you had to of watched a little show called Seinfeld. It was big in the 1990's. You might not remember it. ANYWAYS! I can't explain everything and how this holiday works, but if you want to read the rules and it's origin, visit Wikipedia: Festivus.

'That's quite a pole you have there, Frank!

Hey Everybody...


Be sure to wish her a Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Double Sweet!

Back in June, when I went up to the Napoleon Dynamite Festival, I purchased an ornament that looks like the "Vote for Pedro" t-shirt. Well, I forgot to tell my mother that I had already purchased my Christmas ornament, so she went out and bought me the Darth Vader ornament! Sweet! So Darth and the t-shirt ornament are now hanging on the tree...

3rd Saturday of Every December

On the third Saturday of every December, Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park (3401 Highland Dr. Salt Lake City, UT 84106), and I am quoting from their web site here, "honors loved ones who have passed away with a Luminary of over 10,000 candles placed throughout the cemetery."

(Luminary means, A person who is an inspiration to others... I had to look it up myself)

So, every year, my family and I (not together these past couple of years) drive through the cemetery (as well as hundreds of other people) after the sun has set, to look at the lights.

For those of you who don't know, my sister passed away on December 18th, 1999 to ovarian cancer. This is where she was laid to rest.

Sunday, Freakin' Cold Sunday

On Sunday (12/11), my family and I headed up to the Utah Olympic Park in Park City to take a couple of simple family photographs to send to my nephew in Arizona.

However, while up there, they had a few displays outside the main visitors center that showed who won what (medals), and in what category they won them in. One of them was Tristan Gale. She won Gold in the Woman's Skeleton.

Now, the reason why I bring her up is because of bragging rights... I actually went to school with her. That is all. (lol)

I Can Partially Read It, But Can't Write That

Last Friday (12/2), I drove down to the Orem CompUSA store to get some new earbuds (what the iPod earphones are called). On my way home, I saw this billboard ad (right after the Lindon exit). It took me a second to realize what it was, but once it hit my brain, I finally understood what it said.

If I am correct, I believe this is JavaScript. However, I do recognize the cout << "Now Hiring" >> endl; part. I used that style of code when I wrote a program in C++.

Anyone want to take a guess at what it is saying...?

Hey Everybody...


Be sure to wish him a Happy 21st! May you get drunk, and prosper! (just kidding, dude...)

Brian, I hope you didn't mind that I took this picture from your profile on My Space, but this is the only cool picture that I could find of you...

Attention Super Saver Shoppers!

If anyone was shopping at the Rose Park Super Saver store on December 5, 2005, between the hours of 5PM and 7PM, and found a beanie matching the picture description to the right, please leave the beanie where it is, do nothing about it and keep on walking by.

Okay, here is the deal on why I posted this. Someone really did lose their beanie during that time mentioned above. However, the guy who lost it, apparently wanted us (the employees) to make "Lost" fliers for it. Had his head been attached to his body when he lost it... Yeah, let's not go there...

Photo Booth... Andy Warhol Style

On Thursday (12/1), I had to return an item at CompUSA. But since I had some time to kill before I actually had to head into work, I started messing around with the new iMac.

The new iMac has the webcam (iSight) built right into the computer itself. Well, they happen to write a pretty cool program called Photo Booth. Well, since I was messing around with the computer, I found the actual photo file (which was a bitch to find-- thank goodness for Spotlight) and e-mailed my photo that I took on the computer, to myself. Not the best photo in the world, but you get the idea of creative styles that you can mess around with, just to have your taken with the program.

Then on Friday (12/2), I went back in to take a better Photo Booth picture. That one, you can see as my main picture when you visit
